    I was hoping to get a little feedback on a recent blog I helped to get started. Also I want to get some design tips and what I can do to make it look more unique. Haven't really customized it yet but I want it to look nice. Any suggestions welcome! (it is an interesting little site)

    Hey Greg,

    Is this an edited template or made from scratch?

    Personally from my own imagination. When i hear Gas Station blues, i imagine a blue gas pump with a sad face, pump drooping forward, dripping a little bit of gas out of its nozzel.

    Make the site more inline with what the title is, make it quirky cartoony but not overdoing it.

    You want to make Blogs as fun as possible, add some quirks like boldening specific words,lines,paragraphs. Add pictures, have point of interest (POI) points that will direct the users attention to it straight away. (At the moment the POI of the current site, personally for me, is the light between the pumps...Not sure why.)

    Hope this helps =)

    Oh wow that looks great! It has a lot of character. So would you suggest maybe taking out the entire large image and just having the pump for example then the blog title to the right of it or something of that nature?

    Thanks glad you thought so. =) not bad for 10 mins worth of work ey?

    also change the color scheme to more of a blue's feel, whether thats changing the color etc or what im not sure.
